DJ Snips Masterclass - A Path To Independence

Event DescriptionDJ Snips

The session will be verbal more so than practical. The aim is to give people an understanding of how to navigate the industry outside of the mainstream. Often we’re shown a very clear cut idea of what success in music looks like and the reality is that model works for less than 1% of artists. DJ Snips plans on giving insight into his journey and career path, and how he has developed a sustainable career that has existed outside of a mainstream model, and hasn’t been forced to compromise his ideals or principles. In todays climate we have the tools to bypass major labels and connect the fan directly to artist. The key to doing this is understanding your own brand and identifying who that resonates with.
